Join us for this wonderful tour of the City of Providence presented by the RI Historical Society in collaboration with the RI Film & Television Office.
Discover why Providence is an amazing Hollywood backlot. Learn about its history, and find out about some of our state's most notable and colorful characters. The goal for the walking tour is to provide visiting RIIFF filmmakers with an “insider’s” view of the Downcity and Riverwalk area with an eye toward what would be interesting places for filming, plus a great networking opportunity to meet your fellow artists.
The tour will leave from the Lobby of the Biltmore Hotel.

FLICKERS' RHODE ISLAND INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
The Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF), has secured its place in the global community as the portal for the best in international independent cinema, earning the respect of domestic and foreign filmmakers, filmgoers and trend watchers. RIIFF is widely recognized as a credentialed, industry-friendly launch pad for the work of exceptional emerging talent. This confluence of art and commerce brought together world-class celebrities, award-winning filmmakers, new talent and audience members in record numbers last year. Ranked as one of the top 10 Festivals in the United States, RIIFF is a qualifying festival for the Live Action, Animated and Documentary Short Film Academy Awards through its affiliation with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA). It is also a qualifying event for the Canadian Screen Awards. There are only 6 film festivals worldwide that share this distinction and RIIFF is the only festival in New England.
RIIFF is truly a place where the stars align!
The Main Festival takes place every August and sidebar events occur throughout the year. For more information about the festival, please visit www.rifilmfest.org.
